She and her husband owned and operated Hungry Po’ Boy in Houston for six years. After her husband’s death, Ms. Lawrence worked at the Medical Center del Oro as assistant to the Food Service Director. Today, she continues to cook for the seniors every week at Lilly Grove Missionary Baptist Church. She was interviewed on 30 April 2011 at the home of Ms. Marva Smith.
